Asobi NY recognizes the importance of promoting wholeness within the LGBT community .“Some gay persons reading about traditional Tantra may get the erroneous idea that Tantra’s heterosexual imagery does not apply to gay-identified persons. In fact, part of the conjoined male and female figures is that spiritual wholeness requires a union of “male” and “female” within each of us. I believe those who achieve a fully integrated gay identity accomplish this goal as part of the process. From a tantric perspective, therefore, a gay identity or gay consciousness is an advantage, more “spiritual” than a non-gay, gender-polarized identity or more limited consciousness. Tantra would have us all become more gay in the sense of integrating the male and female within ourselves regardless of the gender of our sexual/romantic partners.”
